To handle the network traffic of distributed port groups by using a LAG, you assign physical NICs to the LAG ports and set the LAG as active in the teaming and failover order of distributed port groups.

LACP Teaming and failover configuration of distributed port groups

Failover Order

Uplinks

Description

Active

A single LAG

You can only use one active LAG or multiple standalone uplinks to handle the traffic of distributed port groups . You cannot configure multiple active LAGs or mix active LAGs and standalone uplinks.

Standby

Empty

Having an active LAG and standby uplinks and the reverse is not supported. Having a LAG and another standby LAG is not supported.

Unused

All standalone uplinks and other LAGs if any

Because only one LAG must be active and the Standby list must be empty, you must set all standalone uplinks and other LAGs to unused.
